2010: The view(s),the Vision

For better or worse, tweets go down in history

The Library of Congress announced the decision to preserve public tweets, as in those 140-character messages sent using micro-blogging site Twitter.  The idea is to save a “snapshot” of history and Twitter is definitely the phenomenon of the month, so maybe it makes sense. For anyone not on Twitter, you’re […]
